3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grassy and floral hop aroma mix wit the sweet maltieness of this hazy orangish brew with a white head. A very well balanced but complex brew. I get the malty sweetness upfront with the bitterness battling through out the taste of this heavy/medium bodied brew. The hopieness is very green or grassy flavored. Seems more like an imperial ipa given the maltieness and th body.

Pours clear golden with a medium white head...heavy sheets of lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, rind, and pine. Flavor follows suit suit...very rindy and firm bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and piney/resinous.

On draft. Pours bright orange with medium white head. Nose is floral; flavor is quite hoppy with only light malt. Bitter finish. Didnít think this was as good as workhorse IPA.

On tap @ Laurelwood PDX. Golden colored beer with white foam. Nice pine and citrus peel aromas. A touch of apricot and resin, too. Sweet caramel malts are quite pronounced. Hints of grass, too. Flavor is rather astringent and bitter. A ton of pine and resin...some mild papery notes. Orange peel, apricot, and sweet caramel malts. Meh.

Had this on tap at Lardo East in Portland (08.10.2014) with Erica and Matt N. Poured a dull, glossy, medium amber with a lot of head. Aroma was fresh pine and tasted of pine, some vegetable, and a bit of grapefruit. Good caramel malt flavor that gave it a soft body (not a harsh/rough IPA at all), but still full of flavor. Good beer and was perfect to wash down all the pork.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to my summer secret santa. Pours a clear gold color with a big pillowy head that fades slowly and leaves good lacing. Aroma is dank, overripe citrus fruit with peaches, malt, and herbal hops. Tastes a bit harsh. The herbal hops seem to cover up the nice peach and citrus hops a bit. Caramel malt shows up in the bitter, dry finish. Pretty well made but just not the flavors I usually look for in an IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Trader Joe in Salem OR
pours a a nice clear burnt orange coloured ale. Nice lively carbonation strings rise from the bottom of my glass. Large rocky,bubbly white head.
Lots of citrus and herbal hop notes in the aroma, Almost like lemon drop sweeties used to like in Scotland.
Taste is less sweet but the taste is of lemon,grapefruit and peach in the hops. Very exuberant. The caramel malt in the back ground prevents it going over the top.
Nice smooth easy going mouth feel very nice for a summer quaffer.
Nice beer so easy to drink for its strength. So be careful out there!
